Annual Giving

Tyler Bradshaw ’09 “For me, scholarships are the reason I am here today. I was a first generation college student and I know that had it not been for the scholarships that I received when I was at Hamilton, I would have never been able to attain a degree.”

The Miami University Annual Fund was established in 1918 (as the Loyalty Fund) to encourage and recognize the support of alumni, parents and friends.

Annual Fund gifts are primarily unrestricted, which means the donor allows the University to use support in the most appropriate manner. In addition, many people designate their gifts toward Class Scholarships, the Parents Fund, specific departments or funds, or other aspects of the University.

All gifts to Miami, no matter what the amount, are important and count in The Miami University Campaign For Love and Honor.
